More than 130 people died in a weekend attack on an ethnic Peulh village in central Mali. It was the deadliest instance yet of recent ethnic and jihadi violence. Attackers wielding guns and machetes targeted the village of Ogossagou in the central Mopti region. The casualties included “pregnant women, young children, and the elderly,” said Abdoul Aziz Diallo, president of a Peulh Fulani group known as Tabital Pulaaku.
